To date, the state of Arizona has not created a specific regulation for CBD products. CBD consumers in Arizona rely on the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized CBD products containing no more than 0.3% THC.


In 2014, a court ruling determined that CBD is medically useful for treating epilepsy, as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC. Similarly to the state of Arkansas and Colorado, the state of Arizona has not established limits for CBD possession.

Where to buy CBD in Arizona

Is Cannabis legal in Arizona?

Recreational use of marijuana is illegal in Arizona. Medical cannabis, however, was made legal after the case of the Welton family in 2010. If you do have a medical marijuana card, you can possess up to 2.5 ounces every two weeks and grow up to 12 plants. However, if you smoke medical marijuana in Arizona you have to do it privately.  Medical marijuana patients never receive a prescription, they rather get a recommendation.

I love to write about Cannabis and Health and try my best to simplify esoteric concepts into simple ideas for life.
